Welcome to the Community.
This could be the 2014 Activation Crash issue. You might check that out and see if it fixes your issue.
I too have this exact problem and have been going back and forth with tech support via email with no success. Have attemped both 3ds Max 2014 and 3ds Max Design 2014 with the EXACT same problem. All video drivers are up to date. AutoCAD 2014 installed fine.
If anyone has a solution for this, I would REALLY appreciate it! I'm starting to fear incompatible video card.
My system is:
DELL XPS 15 - Windows 8 Pro 64 bit
Processor - QuadCore i7-3612QM CPU @ 2.10GHz
HDD - 1 TB
Video - NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M (driver version 320.49) --2 GB RAM
RAM - 16 GB
Hello, I to am having the same issue as you:
The link that has been posted I cannot seem to find - it just sends me to another search database. Any help would be much appreciated - many thanks - Matt.
It appears the link for the fix is broken. These are the steps I used and everything worked fine.
Hope that helps, Good Luck!
